Statistics

Since 2006, the TTF have produced a comprehensive annual breakdown of the UK timber industry, published in our annual Statistical Review. We also produce monthly TTF Timber Statistics which we share exclusively with our members. You can download the annual and monthly Statistical Reviews, as well as the Sustainability Reports, on our Statistics page.

Technical FAQ

Here we have answered some of more common technical questions. If there is anything more specific that you would like to know that is not covered in the Technical FAQs or Technical and Trade Hub please get in touch with us via our Contact Us page.

Technical & Trade Hub

Our Technical and Trade Hub is designed to act as a one-stop hub for our members to find all of the relevant technical resources that they might need. Here you can find essential information and advice on standards guides, customs and shipping, statistics and graphs, contracts and technical aspects.
